Back in 1998, Bill Cardell threw a BBQ to thank local Flyin' Miata customers for their business. Over the years, the event grew and grew. Track days, dyno runs, ridealongs, autocrosses, multi-day tours, scenic drives, technical seminars, Q&A sessions, car shows - and of course, food. But the one constant was the purpose, to thank our customers.
We're happy to announce that the track is back for 2023! Yes, we'll be back at Grand Junction Motor Speedway for time trials on June 9th. Prices are still being finalized and the date for registration has not yet been announced. Watch this space.
Other than the track, participants can expect a fun local drives, gorgeous scenery, tech seminars, new product demos, interesting people, good food, a car show and a chance to just simply hang out.
For those who can't make the drive to our world HQ, we'll have our virtual car show to go along with the in-person one as well as frequent webcasts that will let you take part in the talks. You're on your own for BBQ, though. We have not yet developed that technology.
Registration will open on April 3rd.
